With this laser, you can engrave and cut a variety of materials such as plywood/wood, MDF / balsa, аcrylic, PLA / ABS, felt / fabric, paper/cardboard, hardboard, stone, glass, anodized and painted aluminum, and more.
1. Can a 5W laser engrave metal?
A: A laser module with a power rating of 5W can engrave on metals.
2. What is the difference between a 5W and 10W laser cutter?
A: The main difference between these two models is the power of the laser module.
The 10W model supports more engraving materials, finer engraving, and faster engraving speed compared to the 5W model.
3. Will a 5-watt laser-cut leather?
A: For practical and high-quality leather cutting, The use of lasers with higher power something like a 5-watt laser power output will significantly reduce the time of cutting or engraving and will allow the cutting of thicker samples.
4. What class is a 5-watt laser?
A: Class IIIb
Lasers in this class may cause damage if the beam enters the eye directly. This generally applies to lasers powered from 5–500 mW.
5. Can a 5-watt laser engrave stainless steel?
A: To get metal engraving /marking jobs done you need high ultra-short and high energy pulses. and the average power of the laser should be at least 4 watts. However, to get a metal etching you do not need laser pulses and you may do that with 5-15 watt laser power.
6. What speed does a 5W laser cut?
A: Well, it depends on the material thickness. To cut a 3mm wood sheet, the cutting speed can hit around 230mm/min and cut once. To cut a 5mm wood sheet it will do 2 cuts to cut through it with the speed of 230mm/s.
